Transitoria (Malus 'Transitoria') is a small, wide and pretty flowering crab apple tree with small, delicate, narrowly lobed leaves. The white star-shaped flowers appear as a white cloud. The fruits are yellow, small and abundant.  

Suitable for full sun or a partial shade position and offers a broad range of year round colours as the leaves give a good showing of green, yellows, oranges and reds. 

It either was once awarded or still has the RHS AGM which is the lazy way of writing the Royal Horticultural Society Award Of Garden Merit. This means that a literal shed full of alleged experts thought that one or more of the qualities of the Malus Transitoria were superior to many of its counterparts and gave it this award. 

A small height tree, so expect a height of around 4 metres after 10 years and a similar spread. So almost as wide as it is tall, similar to the American obesity epidemic. 

Malus Transitoria or Transitoria Crab Apple is attractive to wild life which could bring them to your garden. We mean the sort you see on animal documentaries, not the criminal, dole cheating type.

In an ideal world you could expect the flowers to make an appearance in May and fruits to ripen around October but with global warming screwing things up we can only commit to "expect flowers at some point to then turn into fruits some time after". Transitoria flowers are hermaphrodite which means both sex organs are in the same flower and so are pollinated by insects without the need for another Crab Apple tree nearby.  

Tolerant of clay and chalk soil conditions so is a relatively easy tree to look after especially as Transitoria is more disease resistant when compared to other Crab Apple trees. This is one of the reasons you see it planted in public parks and gardens so often. Tolerant of frost unless you are considering taking it as a polar expedition partner (probably more interesting than some of the more recent explorers we have seen on TV). Plant in well draining acid to basic alkaline soils for best results.

The fruits are allegedly edible, try this at your own risk and apparently taste better once they have received a frost.   

Our Transitoria come in two size options depending on stock levels. These are 150-180cm and 180-240cm. Both are usually pruned to be a Half Standard shape which to those not in the know means that it will grow to be a lollipop shape. If it is important to you that you must have this shape, please contact us before ordering to ensure they are available OR state at checkout that you must have Half Standard shape. 

This tree is supplied at a height of between 1.2 and 2.00 metres in a 7-15 litre container for year round planting and better results than from either bare-root or rootballed stock.  

Message card included at no additional cost if required. Just add the information required on the card at checkout. If you would like more information on Malus Transitoria Crab Apple tree, try reading the description again just in case you missed something or email us.

Ornamental Tree Topping
All ornamental trees (not vines) are topped at 1.3 metres to encourage a natural ornamental tree shape with obvious exceptions e.g. patio sizes.This means that your tree was pruned during the growing process and then allowed to grow to the size it is now supplied at.

Multiple Order Discount
Orders over £300 can be discounted by contacting us on 0800 043 1057

Ornamental Tree Roots In The Shade e.g. Behind A Fence
It is more important that that foliage (posh term for leaves) receives the sunlight than the roots. So if the canopy of your ornamental tree can sunbathe but the bottom of your tree thinks there has been a nuclear winter then that is ok. You might want to ensure you have good drainage as water and no sun is the start of algae and other such issues.

Crab Apple Trees Listed As Patio

Any Crab apple tree listed as suitable for patio growing means that it has been grafted onto an M27 rootstock giving it an ultimate height of around 1.5 metres. The standard 12 Litre options are usually grafted onto MM106 rootstock and ultimate heights are determined be each species. Contact us first if rootstocks are important to you. 

Crab Apple Disease Resistance
Crab apple trees are generally resistant to disease but those that seem to be considerably less prone to problems are Admiration, Pink Glow, Wedding Bouquet, ButterBall, Cardinal, Comtesa De Paris, Elk River, Coralburst, Donald Wyman, Golden Gem, Gorgeous, Indian Magic, Jelly King, Louisa, Prairie Fire, Rudolf, Sun Rival, Tina, Scarlett, Transitoria, Guardsman and White Star.
